A True Christmas Story

St. Joseph’s pupil and parishioner, Christian Qualters (age 7), recently embraced the school’s motto to “Grow in Love” by sharing the true Christmas message with those less fortunate than himself. Eager to share the story of the baby Jesus, Christian came up with the idea to make gift packages which he called “Christian Cares”. Each parcel contained items such as a torch, a blanket, some sweets and a book about The Christmas Story.

After wrapping all the parcels, Christian and his sister Mary spent Christmas Day volunteering at a local community event for vulnerable individuals. As well as giving out Christian’s gift parcels, he and his family spent time serving Christmas lunch, doing magic tricks and bringing smiles to bring some Christmas cheer to others. Well done, Christian!
